Copper is a critical component for the integrity of the cardiovascular system. Adequate copper is necessary for the enzymes which produce healthy connective tissue. The integrity of the heart and arteries is dependent on strong and resilient connective tissue. Copper deficiency is associated with aneurysms, heart enlargement, heart enlargement, heart failure, infarcts and ischaemic heart disease.
A deficiency of copper relative to zinc is associated with a decrease in the production of HDL cholesterol and an increase in LDL cholesterol. This imbalance may lead to artherosclerosis.
Too much copper can contribute to heart disease by lowering thyroid activity. Low thyroid activity is associated with high cholesterol.
It is interesting to note that "F" is taking a substantial iron medication (Ferrous Sulf). Iron is an antagonist of copper in the body. If copper is, in fact, low then it may be unwise to be taking an iron supplement.
It is possible that copper is high, rather than low. High copper would partly, or fully explain why iron levels are low (given that they are).
Diabetes type 2 is closely associated with a past history of either extreme or chronic episodes of physical and/or emotional stress. Stress depletes the body of a number of critical pancreatic nutrients and depresses glandular functions that impact directly and indirectly on the pancreas.
Thyroid and adrenal function can be presumed to be poor and these will cause or contribute to the health problems described, including the weight gain, inability to lose it and the diabetes.
My impression is that there are too many medications in the mix. Eight in total. Each has a number of powerful actions and it is impossible to control all of the interactions of so many different medicines. What often happens is one drug is prescribed then another to counter adverse effects. In this case, a potassium medication is prescribed to counter the depletion of potassium by the multiple diuretics. It is a slippery slope down as more and more medications are added to the mix.
As with the medications, there are too many, while well-intentioned, and most are probably of no real health benefit. These must be costing a lot of money. Most supplement programmes are of questionable benefit because most are prescribed without first determining an individual's actual needs. The best supplementation is based on accurate testing.
It is tempting to recommend a thyroid and adrenal recovery programme. Given the excess weight, the diabetes, the heart enlargement and the complexity of the medication, I recommend caution. For example; it would be unsafe to prescribe copper if, in fact, copper was in excess instead of deficient. The recommended course of action is to do further investigation by way of a Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis (Profile 2). Once we have the results and recommendations from this testing we can move forwards from a position of informed strength. To do less is working from guesswork and that would be irresponsible.
In case you are wondering about me being in New Zealand and you being elsewhere; This is not a problem nowadays due to technologies like Skype. Once we have the report, we can arrange a Skype or phone consultation and we take it from there!
